divided basket pattern testers and your baskets!

I’m always so thankful for my pattern testers, they always provide such great insight into a pattern.  So for the Divided Basket Pattern I was super excited to have a few friends help me out!

Here’s Lindsay’s version (LR Stitched), she did an amazing job with her fabric selection! And if you check out her post on the project, she lists a ton of great ideas for ways you can use the basket.

I was excited to have Gail [Probably Actually] help out again, her newest little guy sure is a cutie!  Plus I am always drooling over her beautiful fabric choices. She made not one, but two pretty baskets!  And she loaded them with tons of great goodies.

And I had to ask Darcy from Modern Cozy to help!  I got to meet Darcy at Sewing Summit last fall.  She’s such a nice person and has a love for homemade donuts like I do.  What more can I say?  You had me at donut.  You can read more about her baskets she made here.

I also had my friends June and Darcy review the pattern, they always give me great feedback, even if they haven’t had time to sew up the basket yet!  Now that’s a skill in itself!  Thank you!

I am so thrilled by the response from this pattern and it’s so wonderful to see divided baskets already in the flickr group!  Here’s a little round up of what you’ve been up to so far:

    Ok, I’m in. :-)

    Did anyone else have trouble sewing around the top with the topstitch as you finish the basket? My Singer keeps looping thread underneath? I switched to a size 14 needle, but with all the layers, it just doesn’t want to sew right?

    I have several baskets done, just waiting to finish them! GREAT PATTERN. I have had so much fun making them.

      Hi Anna,
      You might want to try just taking out the bobbin and putting it back in again, sometimes it can be as simple as that to fix.

    • Anna Veit 02.09.2013 at 8:38 pm #

      Thanks, I’ll try that!

  3. Anna Veit 02.08.2013 at 12:30 pm #

    Oops, another question. I am guessing the pattern would work if I eliminated the divider?

    • Anna 02.08.2013 at 1:48 pm #

      yes, you certainly can, just make sure you account for the seam allowance on each side of where the divider would normally be sewn in. :)

    • Darcy 02.08.2013 at 8:50 pm #

      I made one without the divider – I just used the exterior pattern piece as the lining pattern piece too and it worked out great :-)

    thanks for letting me test, anna! your patterns are the best!! i see many more of these baskets in my future :)

    Those baskets are all so cute!! I love that there’s a divider inside. The only thing I would do differently would be to put the handles on the other sides, so that it could be carried with one hand. It might not look so much like a ‘basket’ then, but it’d be much handier to carry. I decided that after making a couple of Ayumi’s baskets. :)

    • Anna 02.08.2013 at 1:48 pm #

      Yep! that’s the great thing about sewing, making things just how you want them. :)

    AAAaaah perfect timing – I had just loaded my new gift card onto my Paypal account and already had this basket on my WANT! Pinterest board – as soon as I read this post and saw all the photos I got dressed, fixed my hair and make-up and drove to the nearest store … I mean I clicked a few times and PRESTO – the pattern is downloaded – gotta love the internet! I’m going to try these for Easter baskets for the g-niece-and-nephews – thanks for another cute project to make!

    Look at all those baskets! Proof positive you’ve made another winning pattern, Anna :)

  9. Susan Jonsson 02.08.2013 at 4:47 pm #

    Wow….I have the pattern on my sewing table….and these examples are soooooooo fantastic. I am going to begin today! T

    They all look so fabulous. Just waiting for my fabric to arrive so I can make mine. So excited!

    Easter baskets, what a great idea. Proof that this isn’t just another basket pattern!
    So pleased to be a tester
    Thanks Anna!

    I’ve made three so far and I love this pattern. I even up sized it to make a bit bigger one and it worked like a charm. Thanks for a great pattern and if you ever need another tester, let me know.

    Hi, is the pattern for one size basket?
    If so what size does it finish?
    I’d like to do a few in different sizes that all match but as I’m new to sewing I don’t know how to resize patterns, I can just about follow one! Lol

  24. Colleen 03.21.2013 at 2:22 pm #

    Hi! Would love to make some of these beautiful baskets. Can a beginner sewer take this on? Thanks!

    • Anna 03.21.2013 at 4:24 pm #

      Yes, I do think a beginner could do this project. I think that if you have a few projects under your belt and are able to go with the swing of things, you’ll do great!
      :)

    I *finally* finished one! It will post tomorrow. Thanks again for a wonderful pattern! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    If your thread is looping on the back make sure you actually have the presserfoot down. sometimes it is hard to tell that when you are sewing something so thick. Also make sure the machine is threaded correctly. any little mistake threading the machine can make a messy stitch.

    Is it possible to still add photos to the Flickr group, and if so, how do I do it?

    • Heidi 11.15.2013 at 11:47 am #

      Never mind, I just answered my own question, haha! I’m still figuring out how Flickr works.
